@RianC Thanks. Having worked with quite a few French people, I’d have to say “Go England!” stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye

@Nozinan might I suggest a generous pour of Lambertus ? satisfied

@OdysseusUnbound have a most excellent birthday! I have many wonderful memories from December 10s.

This is the exact time of year that @Dramlette and I most liked to visit Canada. Once we did so four Decembers in a row. Typically we'd drive up to Vieux Quebec, lodge inexpensively within the old city-- because it was the off-season, stroll about taking in the festive holiday decorations, delight that we were just about the only tourists anywhere to be seen, eat some great meals, usually inexpensively at lunchtime, and wait for the snow to fall. Our first go at this program was our honeymoon-- a few days before we were married.

@Victor I love Quebec City, especially the old town.

@OdysseusUnbound my two favourite tourist areas in North America are Northern New Mexico, especially Taos and Santa Fe, and the walled city of Vieux Quebec. They appeal to different moods, one more of nature, the other more of historical urban charm. Third would be New Orleans, which is my favourite place to eat-- and DRINK-- in the world.

@Maddie, my stalwart, bouncing, rambunctious, Bonne Vivante travel, food, whiski, and all other alcoholic beverages companion Big Sister, HAPPY 80TH BIRTHDAY! -- Yes, I cleared mentioning the number with her first. Thank you so very much for your great generosity to me over my 69.66 years, and for continuing to be my travel and food and beverage buddy. You've been a widow now for 13 years after 40 years of marriage, I a widower for 4 years after 33 years of marriage. You have the perfect open 'Beginner's Mind' for the world we are about to enter. Happy Birthday, Big Sis!!!

Happy Birthday @Maddie!

To honour you and to mark this special milestone, I have opened a bottle of Lot 41-43, 48.2% abv (yes, 1941-43 vintages) aged for several decades in Famille Vallein-Tercinier cellars, exceptional and rare, just like you M.A.D.

Two glasses in the pic, one for each of us.

Cheers!

Happy Vapourware Birthday, @RianC . Vapourware? Yes, Vapourware. It's not today, February 28, 2023. It's not tomorrow, March 1, 2023. It's the "once and future" vapourware birthday, Februrary 29th,...next scheduled for 366 days from now.

Like Frederick The Slave of Duty from Gilbert and Sullivan's The Pirates of Penzance, you chose a birthday unlike those 365/366 "commoner" human beings. Happy Vapourware Birthday, @RianC !!! YOU are even more special than is February 29th.

@Victor - Many thanks, my friend! slight_smile I traditionally celebrate, or did as a nipper, on the 28th but, as today's been a bit of a pig, I'll have it tomorrow instead! Or maybe the day after or Friday or Saturday laughing

@RianC happy birthday for today or tomorrow or whenever you decide to celebrate mate. I think you're the first person I've known born on the 29th Feb. Bit of a claim to fame that!

Twelve Years ago, in March of 2011, I joined Connosr. Time has passed quickly. I raise my glass, in true Connosr fashion, before noon, in a salute to all Connosr members.

Cheers Friends! tumbler_glass tumbler_glass

@paddockjudge happy 12 year Connoversary! I have greatly enjoyed the 10.2 of those years since you and I first tasted together face to face.

@paddockjudge - I echo @Victor’s comments, even though you and I haven’t had the chance to meet in person yet. Hopefully, one of these days we will get that opportunity!

@Victor, I too have enjoyed our numerous tastings, yet too few of them for my liking. However, I do especially like Connoversary.
